The beginnings of Sferra take us back to the year 1891 in Italy, when Gennaro Sferra first traveled to America in a cross-Atlantic steamer. He and his sons were true leaders within the textile industry, setting a high standard for quality linens. In the beginning, they worked to master the textile craft, perfecting their technical know-how. Soon, their linens became a gold standard for luxury linens. Around the world, no linens could compare to Italian woven linens. One of the reasons for this was the high quality of the materials they used for their linens.
